For My Business / Machinery
Propane can be used as an energy source for many types of machinery in construction. Contrary to some beliefs, modern machinery does not lose power when running on propane.
Over the past 20 years, in construction and for the maintenance of hard surfaces (e.g., concrete), the use of polishers, sanders and saws has grown tremendously because they do a better job much faster than traditional machinery.
Their power generally ranges from 11 to 20 horsepower. A standard tank can power a device for 5 to 6 hours and changing a tank is done in just a few minutes without handling oil or gasoline. Polishers and grinders are available in sizes ranging from 21 to 28 inches, a considerable advantage when preparing large floor surfaces.
Unlike electric appliances, propane sanders, polishers and grinders are not limited by the length of an electrical cord. In addition, they provide more torque, rotational speed and pressure than their battery-operated counterpart.
There are also other types of propane-powered machinery on the market: mechanical broom sweepers, automatic scrubbers, concrete carts and even ice resurfacing machines (Zamboni).
